The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer women’s service organization comprising 3,000 chapters and over 185,000 members. On October 11, 1890, eighteen women officially organized the NSDAR for historic, educational, and patriotic purposes. Since that day, more than 1,000,000 women have joined, representing chapters in fifty states and many countries around the world.
The Cahuilla Chapter is named for the centuries old desert dwellers, the Cahuilla Indians. It is an old chapter, chartered in 1949 by twenty-six patriotic women who met in a private home when Palm Springs was a quiet, desert village. The chapter has grown from this modest beginning to a membership of over 160 Daughters in 2020.
